El Negrito, by Antonio Lauro.
A beautiful piece, and quite a workout for the left hand!
I'm working on this piece too. I kind of learned it playing from sheet music a few years ago but never managed to play it without errors. So I'm trying Larry McDonald's segment practise on it.
I'm in almost the same position - a couple of years ago I used to be able to struggle through it, but never without errors, and probably with zero musicality. Then it got neglected for a while, and now I'm relearning it, not with Larry McDonald's method but by playing very slowly, with the metronome set to 50. I may put it a bit lower, because I'm finding that the barre in bar 29 is still major problem.

Bach’s Invention #4 From David Nadal’s book of classical guitar duets.

Plus, I’m writing up an arrangement in StaffPad that was given to me of Henry Purcell’s Music for a While, in A minor. I have trouble reading handwritten music.

The singer requested F minor or G minor but I have enough trouble in A minor, LOL. I think the singer is not aware that music is not transposed as easily on the guitar as it is on the piano. Anyway, I talked her into trying it in A minor. The original is in C minor, too high for her voice.
Speaking of which, today I came across one of the nicest videos I've seen on YT in a while. I could listen to this all day:

:chitarrista: Going for Fransisco Tarrega – Tango. Seem like an easy piece and I like easy ”stuff” and it sound sweet. So I will have it a go. At the same time I will continue to try get the speed up in Bach - BWV 1001 Presto. Happy playing year to you all //A
